Casemiro Is Intimidating EPL Teams—Redknapp slams

With Manchester United coming back to winning ways against Liverpool, and with new signing, Casemiro, Man United legend, Rio Ferdinand doesn’t think there is a need for Barcelona player, Frenkie de Jong.

He declared that the Brazilian coming in will cancel the pursuit of Frenkie de Jong, effectively bringing that chapter to a close.

Frenkie de Jong is a player that Man United manager, Erik ten Hag was very keen on bringing to Old Trafford, partly due to having worked with the player before at Ajax and knowing what he is capable of.

Although same interest wasn’t rekindled by his Netherland compatriot who was very much reluctant to the move to Old Trafford.

The Premier League side then switched attention to Real Madrid player, Casemiro who then signed in exchange for a £70million fee.

However, the signing of the 30 year old Brazilian has been met with a lot of criticism, mainly due to the price tag they signed a player in his 30s for after his unveiling at Old Trafford after the defeat of Liverpool on Monday night.

Speaking on his popular YouTube channel Vibe with Five, Rio Ferdinand, the former Manchester United defender, was asked if United would consider the prospect of signing Frenkie De Jong again following the capture of Casemiro, the former defender gave a direct response.

“No, not [now] that they’ve signed Casemiro, no chance [for De Jong at Manchester United again],” Rio Ferdinand said.
